VGIF is a renowned non-profit organization majoring in supporting girl child and women's issues. I was introduced to VGIF by the IFUW ( in the late nineties. In the early 2000s, my organization, Nigerian Association of University Women (NAUW), Ikeja Branch applied for a grant and we were awarded $5,000 to empower teenagers. This grant turned out to be life saving because of the skills our teenagers received which impacted their career goals. I now serve as a grant pre- reviewer for VGIF. I highly recommend VGIF to philanthropists, this is a good place to impact the world.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of the teenagers the grant they gave helped empower.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the budget exponentially.

Volunteer & I assist in pre-reviewing grant applications.
